Photo by Sherry Bushue in Bagan, Burma (Myanmar)
I love your work!
awesome .... ...
Wow you can see the anguish in her face, the hard work the labor, the weight if life it self .... breaks my heart! great photo you captured the emotion wonderfully.
Stunning portrait. (I've noticed these workers have some sort of clay daubed on their faces. Why is this? Is it some sort of very basic sun-screen?)
It's a paste made from a particular tree bark that's used for both a sunscreen and as decoration....it's a common practice in Burma. In this photo it has partially worn off.
Strong and beautiful image!
I absolutely wanna go to Burma after I see your portraits..
